Tyler, The Creator rose to fame through graphic lyrics, which left no controversial issue unturned, including the likes of rape and sexuality. This led to the GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) community, among others, to be less than pleased with him and his Odd Future crew.
So when OF's Frank Ocean came out of the closet earlier this week, the attention was almost immediately turned onto Tyler and how he would react. Well Tyler recently took to Formspring, out of all places, to answer a fans question about the issue.
"hahaha yeah, ive know for a while, he told me a long time ago. it was just funny cause i was getting bashed as a homophobe or whatever and i kept saying dude how am i one? i have gay friends like what the fuck leave me alone haha. yeah thats my n***a tho, shit is hard for him but he did that." – Tyler
